Celebrating Drexel's History

August 4, 2016

Did you know that in 1984, Drexel became the nation's first university to require all undergraduates to have personal access to a microcomputer for use in all of their coursework?

In planning for the upcoming year we have been searching the University Archives for interesting and lesser-known facts about Drexel history. These items include images, traditions, memorabilia, yearbooks, and more and we look forward to sharing them with you throughout the year.

Now is the time to let us know what you might like to learn about or remember. What are your favorite Drexel memories and traditions? What historic events would you like to know more about? Share your thoughts with us at
